Data Flow Art
One of the highlights during the London Design week was PRISM, a structural and digital installation by Keiichi Matsuda and associates. “PRISM presented an alternative view of London, exposing intangible data flows in the capital. It is a lens into a second city, one that is made from infrastructural data feeds and exchanges”.
PRISM was located at the top of the V&A, in an area that is not normally open to the public. This was a very unique and more intimate experience to view the work, that was there only for a very limited time.
The installation is a living patchwork of data. It is constantly changing following the data streams e.g. energy use at no. 10 Downing street. The trend of data visualisation is moving towards more complicated multimedia installations.
